BTT to Airdrop to Tron (TRX) Holders


You may have already heard that Bit Torrent will be releasing their own cryptocurrency on the Tron (TRX) blockchain network. They intend to use the token as a means of rewarding people who use their BitTorrent client to seed content. For those who do not know, the BitTorrent system works by having people seed (upload) data as they are downloading it, while also utilising people who have a full version of the file to act as seeders (uploaders).

Generally speaking the seed to download ratio which any one user possesses is used to dictate the top download speed someone will benefit from. The new BTT cryptocurrency aims to provide seeders with a cryptocurrency reward as well.

The airdrop

If you have been on Twitter you will have seen the Tron founder tweeting about BitTorrent, pretty much non stop recently. His lates string of tweets have been regarding the fact that BitTorrent will be airdropping all TRX holders on a 1:1 basis.

In order to receive your BTT airdrop you simply need to hold you TRX in an official wallet or in one of the supported exchanges. As the Binance Launchpad is where the ICO is being held I would presume Binance to be one of the supporting exchanges.

It has been confirmed that CoinTiger is a supporting exchange as well as a few other exchanges however there is no concise list which has all the exchanges on it that I am aware of. So, I have made a short list with all exchanges which have been officially announced below.

The token-buy event will be held on the Binance Launchpad on January 28th 2019 at 7PM PST.
